Out with the Old & In with the New
In light of the New Year and our need to purge out the old, I'm going to dedicate January to organizational blogs. I am an organizer innately, I come by it honestly, not because I was raised around organization and order, but simply because I'm a Virgo. I find great joy in organizing, be it weird or not, it makes me more calm and relaxed and able to focus on more important and fun things like my family. This is just a trait I was born with I suppose. When I was a kid I would lock myself in my room for the day to rearrange and organize my stuff, just to show it off to my Mom in a big surprise moment. She never questioned my need to do this on a regular basis, or why I was making such a racket, she just let me be and never disappionted in her reaction at the 'reveal'. I have grown up tweaking this skill, and when offered a room/closet/drawer to organize, I can't turn it down. For the next while, I'm going to show you how we do it around here and hopefully let you in on a few secrets. Check back for the first installment!
